This palace is 75 percent restored to ensure its longevity and for the convenience of the visitors to walk around it. The Palace takes you back in time when the kings ruled this magnificent hilly area. The whole palace has low ceiling and entrances as the average height of the kings were very less. The very place the palace has... More

I should say it is famous being a old structure and popular touristy place. All it offers if great views of the city and a bit of history. People can skip this. Carry some water along.

Leh Palace is a former royal palace overlooking the Ladakhi Himalayan town of Leh. The temple architecture is basically medieval Tibetan architecture. The main features of this style of architecture are massive buttressed walls and overhanging wooden balconies.There are some murals still left in the palace that speak of the royal glory of the bygone era.

A very dilapidated building.. not very well maintained... but has a lot of heritage value. It does not any signboards to tell details about the place. Be sure to walk up the stairs slowly as your lungs cannot take enough oxygen as it would have at sea level or at lower altitude

Nothing much left inside the palace. It is more of a structure now, with a magnificent façade. The structure looms over the city of Leh and can be seen from almost all parts of the city.

We were excited to visit the royal palace but it was a let down to be honest. The palace is not at all managed and restored properly. They charge an entry fee so I would expect them to manage it as well but to be honest it was not. Once you climb the stairs and reach the top, it caters... More
